    Green Themed.

    The Hub City Turners, a local woodturning club I belong to, will have a display of turnings at a local mall. The theme is Green. I struggled for a while trying to come up with something so I decided to make a pen from Staghorn Sumac. It is a small tree that has green wood to varying degrees.The kit is a Canadiana kit that I've had for ages from William Wood-Write. Finish is Ca, buffed on a Beall buffing set in the lathe. The pictures taken in the light tent don't do the high shine justice. Oh well. Hope you like.

    Pete

    A lovely well made pen, Pete.
    I like the way that you have the grain clearly running top to bottom.

    That’s very nice. All the Sumac I have used has been yellow, it is nice to see green. You have made a lovely job of that.
